‘Kashmir issue is very old and chronic’: Rajnath Singh


SRINAGAR: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that we formed the government in Jammu and Kashmir with Peoples Democratic Party in the interest of the state and the country. But unfortunately, it did not work out.

In an interview with Zee News Rajnath Singh said that the Kashmir issue is very old and chronic. It will take some time to resolve. But we are determined to ensure Kashmir’s development for the welfare of its residents.

He added that Lal Krishna Advani-Murli Manohar Joshi era has not ended. They have contributed a lot in making the BJP strong. We have immense respect for them.

Rajnath Singh added “I have achieved most of the targets working as Home Minister. We have successfully tackled the Naxal menace. Naxalism has been contained in 130 districts. The moral of our security forces have been strengthened. The situation will change for the better”
